The local community are invited to pay their respects at Remembrance ceremonies across Redbridge this November.

South Woodford will host the first of the borough’s six wreath-laying events with a service at the Woodford War Memorial in front of St Mary’s Church on 9 November from 9am.

Three more services will take place the following day: at Ilford War Memorial (10.50am), Hainault War Memorial (10.45am) and Wanstead War Memorial (12.30pm). On Remembrance Day itself, Fairlop Waters Country Park and Snaresbrook’s Garden of Remembrance will be the setting for two minutes of silence at 11am.

“It is only fitting that we pay tribute to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice… We owe them a debt of gratitude,” said the Mayor of Redbridge, Councillor Zulfiqar Hussain.
